    Things have been going great! I’ve had good energy, good moods, good sleep, and cravings have been very manageable. One exciting moment: I have a self-imposed ban on almond butter (unless it’s an ingredient in something else) because it’s such a food-with-no-brakes for me. I was making a sauce with almond butter for dinner tomorrow, and decided it would be ok to lick the spoon. Whoa - it was AMAZING, felt like hitting a crack pipe. Huge rush of dopamine, I guess? Anyway, I licked the spoon clean, but did not get another bite from the almond butter jar. Normally I would have a few bites, so I call that a win!

    I had one of those infamous Whole30 dreams last night, this one involving a pint of Ben & Jerry’s. Not craving during the day, though! And energy has been good!

    Um, that would be FRESH fish, not greasy fish (thanks, autocorrect). Why can’t I find the edit button?

    @JanineCammarata that fish & veggie dinner looks fantastic! I love fish, but am kind of intimidated when it comes to cooking it. I eat a lot of canned salmon and sardines, but I will try cooking some greasy fish next week - thanks for the inspiration! Just finished day 4 here. I’ve been eating somewhat repetitively, but I don’t mind I love leftovers because they save so much time! Breakfast: 2 prosciutto egg cups Lunch: same as yesterday: chicken drumsticks with homemade mayo, salad, avocado Snack: kombucha Dinner: same as yesterday, LOL! Leftover beef curry. I put it over raw spinach and had lots of fresh basil and cilantro. Yum!

    I started today, March 17th! I wrote a long intro post (“Annika eats & muses”) in the “Your Whole30 Log” section, where I plan to log most days to keep me motivated and on track. I’ve bern mostly paleo/primal for several years, but still struggle with my sugar dragon and have control issues around tempting food. I’d love to be part of this group even though I’m a couple of days early!
